In July this year, we wrote that the Polish Football Association, and in particular its former president Zbigniew Boniek, are trying to organize the European Women’s Championships to be held in 2025. To this end, the Polish Football Association was supposed to contact UEFA at the end of October to transfer its candidacy to host the tournament.
The Polish Football Association announced the details of its candidacy for the Euro 2025 women’s host
On Thursday, the Polish Football Association officially confirmed that it is trying to host the European Women’s Championships in 2025. As confirmed, nine cities have been pre-entered as host cities for the tournament. The selected locations are Białystok, Bielsko-Biała, Gdańsk, Gdynia, Lublin, Łódź (ŁKS stadium), Tychy, Warsaw (Legia stadium) and Wrocław. As emphasized, in addition to stadiums, it will also be necessary to prepare more than 40 hotels and 34 training facilities.
As many as 31 matches will be played as part of the tournament – 24 group matches, four quarter-finals, two semi-finals and a final that will select the best team out of the sixteen that will take part in the final tournament in 2025.
PZPN also informed about its rivals in the fight for the organization of this tournament. The counter-candidates are France, Switzerland, Ukraine, as well as the collective candidacy of Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland. The selection of the Euro 2025 women’s host will be made in December 2022.
Great plans of the English for Euro 2022
Women’s soccer in Europe keeps improving and increasing in quality. The last European championship was organized in the Netherlands in 2017. Then the winners of the tournament were the Dutch. The final of the women’s Euro was watched by over 28 thousand. fans, which only shows the increased interest in these games.
The next Women’s European Championship will be held in June 2022. The tournament will be hosted by England, and the final will be played – as in the case of Euro 2020 – at Wembley Stadium in London. Organizers assume that it will be the biggest women’s football event in Europe, as long as the coronavirus pandemic does not prevent its launch.
Polish women have never played at the European Championships. The organization of the tournament in 2025 would be a great opportunity to debut in this tournament. As the host of the Polish women, they would have guaranteed participation in the finals.
